|Tyreís King Overthrown
28:1 The word of Yehuveh came again unto me, saying,
28:2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith Yehuveh Elohim; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a Elohim, I sit in the seat of Elohim, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not Elohim, though thou set thine heart as the heart of Elohim:
28:3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:
28:4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:
28:5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:
28:6 Therefore thus saith Yehuveh Elohim; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of Elohim;
28:7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.
28:8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.
28:9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am Elohim? but thou shalt be a man, and no Elohim, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.
28:10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith Yehuveh Elohim.
28:11 Moreover the word of Yehuveh came unto me, saying,
28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith Yehuveh Elohim; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of Elohim; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
